Salvation Mountain Engagement Session: Dominique + Cam

salton sea engagement

Calling all Twilight fans! Recognize somebody in this shoot? Yep, it’s Cam Gigandet and his (ridiculously adorable) fiancé, Dominique. It’s always fun to tag along on a celeb engagement shoot and we’re super excited to feature this free-spirited duo’s Salvation Mountain + Salton Sea session today! If you can’t already tell, Dom + Cam are stylish, laid-back + totally in love. Let’s hear a bit more about the two of them and their awesome shoot locations from Kelly of Wild Whim Design + Photography:

I have been photographing these two and their adorable kids, Ever + Rekker, for the last few years and when Dom got ahold of me with the news they were finally ready to make this wedding thing a reality, I knew Salvation Mountain and the Salton Sea were the perfect fit. The long drive was well worth it as we had a blast exploring the area and making some incredible images together.

Bohemian Desert Elopement Inspiration

desert elopement

We’ve got just the thing to get you lovelies through the rest of your Monday! An ultra-dreamy bohemian desert styled elopement, from Chelsea Nicole Photography, that will no doubt have you feeling both serene + inspired. We’re always a fan of desert details + we’re pretty crazy about the super pretty wedding dresses, those lace dreamcatchers and the succulent-clad tablescape featured in this editorial. So many great ideas that would easily translate to fêtes of so many kinds!

From Chelsea, The shoot was set in the ruins of an old ghost town and Death Valley with the majestic Nevada-California mountains as the backdrop. It tells the story of a carefree, spirited girl who drifts asleep and awakens to a romantic elopement. A tablescape for two was styled by The Wooden Trunk, with simple potted succulents and assorted dusty blooms with small pops of color. And the bride’s wedding dresses were custom-made and designed by Sophia Rose Bridal.
